Ok here we go. Thanks in advance for reading this and maybe being able to help me. My husband decided to get adventurous with his Optimus T Black and try to root it because he was reading about all the extra things you can do with it, on it, app wise etc. . . I am usually the one that does all these kind of things NOT him. I thought he was joking, I was wrong. He made it thru the root process it looks like he was able to customize the font and options on it and then all of a sudden "force close" pop ups starting popping up non stop so he manually shut the phone down by pulling the battery. When he tried to turn it back on and will not go passed the "Android" screen. I have read many threads and just can't seem to figure out what it is, I thought it was bricked and then it came back on but everything was enlarged, kind of zoomed in it seemed, it was mainly unresponsive black background and icon tray at the top the only thing that appeared but nothing functions. Then I tested it and it goes into emergency mode just fine without a problem and comes out of it. The power key+vol. down does nothing for me, no download menu comes up it just boots up and then stops at the "Android" screen again. The laptop is not recognizing the phone when it is plugged into it and the LG Update tool isn't recognizing it either and there is no way to try to restore the firmware thru that tool since it won't recognize it. Any suggestions on how I might be able to solve this issue? For now I will continue to creep and crawl thru Google search results and forum posts to see if I can find anything that relates. But I am pulling my hair out Thanks again in advance for the help.
